    Matches Pattern does not work because the application name is WizTree v3.26 and Matches Pattern, unless specified with wildcards, matches exactly. In your case, you should try using Starts With instead of Matches Pattern, but oddly enough Matches Expression works in this instance as well, because Matches Expression will match any part of the text where the match occurs.

    Which is what our Collection Library collection for WizTree alrea dy uses, which will be updated to use the more correct Starts With all the sub-collections use:

    Ok thanks and would be a good practice to "Link" a PDQ Deployment to this type of collection (collection where the computer doesn't have the application? This is a collection I want to keep down to 0 as much as possible.

    Yes, if you never want computers in Inventory to not have this application that would be the best way.
